In the latest episode of The Star Wars Show, David Collins pops into a photo shoot for a Rogue One commercial in production by Target. Within the storyboards, can clearly see the rumored exclusive 6″ Black Series Captain Cassian Andor figure. Just announce it already.
As promised, Hasbro has unveiled a few of their exclusives for Rogue Friday next week – two of which have leaked prematurely. Head on over to Yahoo to check out the 6″ Black Series Jyn Erso (Kmart), Imperial Hovertank Pilot (ToysRus), Cassian Andor Blaster Rifle (Target), Smart R2-D2 (Walmart) and the Black Series Battlefront Shadow Trooper Helmet (Amazon).
I looks like Target has activated 5 new DPCIs for each figure in the first wave of 6″ Black Series figures for Rogue One.
087-06-8010 – Kylo Ren (Unmasked)
087-06-8011 – Jyn Erso (Jedha)
087-06-8012 – Cassian Andor (Eadu)
087-06-8013 – K-2SO
087-06-8014 – Death Trooper
Could each of these codes be for full cases of each figure for ease of ordering or to stave off returns of older, clearanced product for new?
Thanks to TargetGod for the report.
Aisle resets have begun at Target stores this week in preparation for the holiday season as well as the marketing push for Rogue One. Bryan S. from the 6″ TBS Facebook Collectors Group has posted several images of mark downs on the 6″ Special Force TIE Fighter ($118.98), 6″ Black Series figures ($13.98) and Black Series Titanium Series ships and more.
UPDATE: @KyloCollector on Instagram also ran in to the same clearance at his Target
